Warrior Dash coming to CT

Thompson, CT– Warrior Dash is coming to Connecticut for the second time this summer on September 22 & 23, 2012 and we have a pair of tickets to giveaway!  Justin and I will be participating this year with a great group of friends and we are totally psyched (psyched yes, but prepared? …now thats debatable).  Looking to win the tickets?  Just fill out this form and like us on Facebook.  Tweet this contest to double your chances!

Congratulations to Linda B, winner of a pair of Warrior Dash tickets on Sept 23!  Thank you to everyone who entered.  The contest is now closed.

This mud-crawling, fire-leaping extreme 5K from hell  is not for the faint of heart.  Described as the ultimate event for thrill seeking athletes, you work hard and then celebrate even harder after the event with a festival filled with food, beer, music, and muddy warriors!  They even throw in a fuzzy Warrior Helmet , t-shirt and finishing medal for participants.

Friends who completed the Dash a few months ago described the environment as one of companionship and teamwork.  It is not uncommon for participants to lend a helping hand to boost you over the Great Warrior Wall or carefully maneuver the cargo nets.  Other obstacles that I am excited and terrified about include the Horizontal Hike, Teetering Traverse, Barricade Breakdown (which includes crawling through mud under barbed wire), and the Tunnel of Terror.  To see a picture and description of each obstacle we are up against, visit

The best part is, Warrior Dash is a proud supporter of  St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.  Each participant has the oppotunity to become a St. Judes Warrior, where they are asked to funraise a certain amount of money in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.  St. Judes is one of the world’s premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other deadly childhood diseases. It costs $1.7 million a day to operate St. Jude, where families never pay for the care they receive.  By becoming a St. Jude Warrior and fundraising, you will inspire hope in children who need it the most, the patients of St. Jude.

So if you are looking for adventure, fun, team building and something new, fill out the form to enter the contest.  Only one entry per-person.  A winner will be announced on Thursday, August 9th, so be sure to check back!
